Mar 25, 2021, 4:00 PM EDT (Updated)

The SYFY25: Origin Stories Podcast, hosted by Adam Savage (editor-in-chief, and former co-host of Mythbusters), is a nostalgic celebration of all things science fiction. In this podcast series Adam sits down with creators, thought-leaders, and celebrity fans to discuss the moments, people, and milestones that have changed the genre universe forever. From revealing personal anecdotes to deep philosophical discussions.

Futurama creator and showrunner, David X. Cohen, talks to Adam about abandoning his noble scientific pursuits for sci-fi comedy; how comedy and space best mix; and why a curmudgeonly drunken robot might be the most human character of all.
